The National Institute of Technology Sikkim (NITSKM) is a premier technical institute of the region. NIT Sikkim is one among the ten newly sanctioned NITs by the
Government of India in 2009 under the eleventh five year plan and it is declared as an 'Institute of National Importance'. NIT Sikkim is an autonomous institute and
functioning under the aegis of Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India.
NIT Sikkim started its academics in 2010 with three engineering departments - Computer Science and Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering, and
Electrical and Electronics Engineering at undergraduate level.
The students of NIT Sikkim are about to make their foray in their professional lives. The students have gone through the difficulties associated with a new institute. At the same time they have learned to work in adverse conditions and have successfully done it. They had to go through a disciplined academic exercise followed by strict evaluation and orientation in values of life. I am sure the companies will find potential knowledge workers in them. Moreover at NIT Sikkim the students are oriented toward Thinking Engineers, thinking for doing something innovative meaningfully.
